Dog poop colour- what does it mean?

Dog poop colour- what does it mean?

1. Brown: whether it’s lighter or darker shade, brown poop is normal and healthy. 


2. White: A white, chalky poop

may mean that your

dog's diet is too high in

calcium which can

lead to constipation.


3. Green: Usually an indication

your dog has eaten

lots of grass due to a

tummy upset.


4. Black: Black, tarry poop

indicates bleeding

higher up in your dog's

gastrointestinal tract.

Call your vet for advice.


5. Yellow: Often indicates a food intolerance or problems

with the liver, gallbladder

or pancreas. Again,

consult your vet.


6. White spots: Brown poop with rice-like

flecks (or longer,

spaghetti-like strands) may

indicate your furry friend

has worms. It's usually an

easy fix - call your vet to

arrange treatment.


7. Red streaks: There could be

bleeding in the lower

digestive tract. Call

your vet for advice.
